Investigation of the effect of metallic screens on image quality in gamma computed radiography

Nick D‘Ademo, DÜRR NDT
15. Nov 2018 /

The role of metallic screens in computed radiography for controlling scattered radiation is very well-known. This paper extends this topic further and quantitatively investigates how image quality in terms of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and basic spatial resolution (SRb) is influenced by metallic screens when Iridium-192 is used as the radiation source.
